TeraVolt and 3 Screen Solutions (3SS) have been selected to design, engineer, develop and integrate apps and management systems for bobbles.tv, the new pan-European video entertainment platform recently launched via DTH and OTT.
TeraVolt specialises in strategy and design of next-generation TV products while 3SS provides customised software solutions and services to the multiscreen digital entertainment industry. Both companies are based in Germany.
Commissioned by MX1, the technical services subsidiary of Astra satellite operator SES, TeraVolt provided bobbles.tv’s design including a user front end that enables subscribers to navigate on a range of devices, the platform’s linear channels and libraries.
Bobbles.tv delivers channels from around the globe to expats in Europe via Astra (19,2° East) and online. The multiscreen platform aims to reach a potential audience of around 14 million people originating from Asia, Latin America and Africa, but currently living and working in Europe.
The subscription service went live in August 2016 initially with programming offers for Chinese, Indonesian, Indian and Korean communities.
